This wedding in Commenda di San Calogero was like a dream that comes true! It was my first time as wedding photographer in Sicily and I was impressed by the beauty of this land.
Just imagine the smell of summertime in Sicily, the colors explosion of bouganville on the walls. Then add the typical mood of the Southern Italy countryside. Today I’m happy to share with you Andrea and Giada’s wedding in Commenda di San Calogero.
Giada and Andrea are based in Northern Italy but they both have Sicilian roots. So a wedding in their beloved Sicily was a perfect way to celebrate their love.
They have planned every details with love, from an emotional ceremony in late afternoon filled with speeches to a stunning dinner under the stars.
Giada has chosen a pink palette with a touch of white that fitted perfectly with the mood of the day. A big arch full of peonies and olive leaves was the perfect background for their celebration.
We enjoyed the olive trees field so much by taking photos in there. Sunset light is my favorite.
The dinner long imperial tables were set inside the Commenda’s lounge because of the uncertain weather. Anyway the atmosphere was magical inside too.
Beside every lovely detail they were surrounded by the most important thing ever, the love of their families and friends from all over Italy.
I had to left Sicily during sunrise the day after their wedding because I had to shoot another wedding on Garda Lake on sunset. It was a tiring but beautiful week for me and I hope to enjoy the Commenda di San Calogero again in future.
